It's not worth it

So Saddam's defense lawyers are getting gunned down. More evidence that we're pretty far from having that country under control. Not that we needed it. The question must be asked: Is having this trial worth a single other death? I submit that it is not. And I understand the importance of a fair trial, but stepping into the courtroom would be like it was to walk in to see Titanic about seven years back. Everyone knows the ending, and I want my goddamned eight bucks back.

Its not that I don't want the trial to happen. I do. But it obviously cannot take place inside Iraq in its current state. Defense lawyers have asked that he be moved to a neutral country, but I seriously doubt that he could be moved without incident. This is an utterly worthless man. To risk lives on his behalf is folly.

Delay the trial as long as it takes. It's just not worth it to do it now.

  1. The best defense Saddam would have had would be through self-defense on a televised debate like he proposed to G Bush, who refused the idea. I would have watched that for the entertainment value, but I probably would have learned more about the issue as well. The way things are, he'll never have a fair trial and why does it matter because he'll be held, just like many "illegal combatants" are, uncharged until they die in their cell.

  2. I don't think it's worth another death but do you think it will matter to anyone as much death as has already happened?
